Springorchid Files

Springorchid Files is my personal blog and learning project. I file information that interest me as well as learn and experiment with digital content creation and Internet marketing.

What does Springorchid mean?

Springorchid is made up of 2 words: Spring and Orchid. It is a straightforward translation of my Chinese name: 春兰.

Growing up, I was told that the meaning of my name is just some flowers in the springtime. A teacher once told me that it is a common practice for the uneducated to name children after natural objects and seasons. It is true that many domestic helpers in feudal China bear similar names.

Much later, I found out that 春兰 is the Chinese name of an orchid species known as Cymbidium goeringii. Confucius called it the Noble orchid.

It is a small plant, with small fragrant flowers. It grows on the ground in temperate regions like Japan, China and the Korean peninsula.

I don’t think my father knew about this association when he gave me my name. But it is nice to share my name with a beautiful fragrant orchid.

I thought it would be nice to use this to name my personal blog. It also gave me an opportunity to mention the noble orchid.

What do i File?

I used to maintain 2 sites:

  1. Magic of Homemade Chinese Soups where I write about Chinese soups, Chinese cooking techniques, recipes etc.
  2. My Filing Cabinet where I write about knitting, literary adaptations, old movies and anything that interested me.

In a bid to simplify my life, I have decided to combine both of them under SpringorchidFiles.com

My current files include:

While I happily file away, I hope others have found the information useful. If any did, do let me know by leaving a comment. Thank you!

Happy browsing!

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you accept guest post for your blog. If you do, I would like to submit a few. You can see a sample of my work at LaptopComputers.org under the author James Mowery. I’ve also written for several high-profile blogs like Mashable, Performancing, and CMSWire. Thank you for your time.

      Dear James, thank you for your offer but my filing cabinet is a personal blog not a business blog and I would like to keep it that way. Thanks for dropping by. All the best!

    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing.  Love the picture of the dog, by the way.  I copied the lyrics of
    one of the songs written in Singapore and the wonderful people there.

    Hi Phoebe! Thanks for sharing this website. Your filing cabinet had helped me greatly in sarching for the song “Your Loving Kindness is Better than Life” in the Chinese album “Justified” by New Creation Church. A recorded music file of this song was sent to me asking if I knew what song it was. Basing on the muffled recorded two lines, I tried typing out the only two lyrics recorded and what I could make out. Then found the search result showing your filing cabinet. From the lyrics posted on your website, I continued to search for the song and found the track on another website! I should’ve prayed before beginning the search and should’ve clicked on your link before starting my search which took me a few hours (saw your blog link but ignored initially). Shortly after I prayed, I saw your blog link again and found the song within 2mins! This song is very important to me because it is for my sis’ friend who has shifted to Shanghai to work and who has just found a church to worship. She came across this song and recorded 2 lines, asking my sis to help search what song it is. Thanks again, Phoebe.

    Hi Ms. Phoebe,
    I stumbled upon your website while looking for the lyrics of NCC songs. It’s my first time to find a traveling person to worry about homeless people, usually people are more concerned about their own tours, praise God for people like you. Hoping by God’s will, I be able to work in SG, I would love to go and have a ministry in NCC someday. From what I can see, there’s a big difference with people who understand God’s love for them. I find them cool 🙂 God bless!
